off the cliff. >> so you want the sequestration cuts to go ahead, even on defense. i'm just getting breaking news that the president -- >> well, just remember, on defense, we are now spending substantially more, inflation adjusted, than at the height of the vietnam war, when we were waging the cold war and we had 500,000 troops in the field. >> well, cnn has just confirmed, congressman, that the white house, the president will meet with the congressional leadership, both parties tomorrow at the white house. what do you think they need to put on the table and get done tomorrow? what do you want to hear them say? >> john, when did we stop teaching civics in our schools? the president is not supposed to be part of the deliberative process. he heads an entirely separate branch of government with an altogether different purpose. i think we need to go back to the way the government was designed to operate, and that is the deliberative function, in the legislative branch, both the house and the senate, acting independently. and then resolving their differences through conference. that proc

't be surprising to see a skate-along through the session. you mentioned defense stocks. the sequester sectors have been doing quite well. financials, obviously. housing stocks on a tear this year. but take a look also at the defense index. the philadelphia defense index, we are very close to all-time highs on this defense index. there are a couple of names to watch within this index. general dynamics, which has had a nice run since about the mid-november time frame or so, announcing today that along with huntingtonengles, it has won a navy submarine contract. and those are secure even if the defense department undergoes sequestration. interesting deal being made there. >> taking a look at some of the biggest names that are among the biggest losers. traders have told us, if you're in the money on a lot of these names, why not take some money off gap for instance, masco. names like that are related to housing and retail. >> and speaking of retail, coors, third straight day of losses for shares of coors. a big winner so far this year. yesterday, citigroup had cautious comments from itses, saying in s
to have a conservative task to them. they tended to be oriented around history of strong national defense, of an opposition to unions and a defense of free enterprise politics. and also it's in the sun belt, in the south and southwest that we see the rise of what we see by the 1970s is becoming to talk about as the religious right, the rise of evangelical involved in the clinical process in new and important ways. so thurmond was at the forefront of all of those issues in his own politics. national defense, he was a staunch anti-communist. he played an important role in right wing anti-communist populist politics in the late '50s and early 1960s. it's one of the things that led him to switch parties in 1964. he was a key figure in opposing labor unions. he did so alongside people like barry goldwater. even the early in his career he had been a staunch advocate of unions in south carolina back in the '30s and '40s when the union vote was an important vote in south carolina, but he switches in the '50s and 60s about 1970s, some diehard supporter of business against labor. then he also is im
and devastating defense cuts will go into effect in 10 days. the house has already passed bills addressing the fiscal cliff. we passed a bill replacing the president's sequestered with irresponsible spending cuts. we did that last may. we passed a bill to stop all the tax hikes on the american people scheduled to take effect january 1, and we did that august 1. and we proposed plans over and over again that democrats used to support but now will not. i do not want taxes to go up, republican do not want texas to go up. but we only when the house. democrats continued to run washington. what the president has proposed so far simply will not do anything to solve our spending problems. he wants more spending and more tax hikes that will hurt our economy. and he simply will not deal honestly with entitlement reform and the big issues facing our country. we need significant spending cuts and real tax reform to address our long-term debt problem and pave the way for long-term growth and real growth in jobs in our country. we will continue to work with colleagues in the house and senate on a plan t
fundamentally? >> pretty defensive areas in many cases there? >> i would say that -- >> thank you. we've got to go, guys. thank you for your thoughts and ideas today on our beloved fiscal cliff. >> five days to go and counting before we fall off the so-called fiscal cliff and while there's no deal, more news out of washington and our very own john harwood is there. >> reporter: mandy, we've got a letter from the republican leadership to the president and to the democrats in the senate saying that the house has acted, they passed legislation last year to extend all the tax cuts and to shift the scheduled sequester cuts from defense to domestic programs, but, of course, in urging the senate to act saying, well, we've acted, now it's your turn, we're simply not going to see the democrats take them up on that because president obama since that letter has won the election and now we're looking at the possibility of a mini deal that would get enacted before january 1st but so far all we've heard are the sounds of silence in the negotiations. a senior white house official told me today when i asked
slaughtered, and we have to come to the table not defensively and acknowledge these are not just other people's kids, they could be our kids and grandkids next time. i think the entertainment culture has to accept some responsibility. you know, in almost every one of these cases of mass shootings, it's the same pattern. a young man troubled, reclusive, almost always involved in some kind of violent entertainment media gets guns and then kills a lot of people. we have to stop it. >> there's a lot here i wanted to ask you about, and i want to move on to senator chuck hagel, a man you know. we are led to believe he may be the person president obama wants to lead the defense department when secretary panetta leaves. you may know that a number of jewish organizations and folks on capitol hill have objected already to the idea of hagel saying he has had a number of anti-israeli votes, that he has said things they perceive as anti-israeli. has chuck hagel in your opinion disqualified himself because of these various stances from becoming secretary of defense? >> i served with chuck hagel and worked
colleague from nebraska, being secretary of defense. john cornyn said he would oppose that nomination because of his views on israel and other issues. would you have any problem with that nomination of senator hagel or for that matter senator kerry? >> well, i have no problem at all with john kerry. i've served with him for four years on the senate foreign relations committee. he's done outstanding work particularly in the middle east, has been a great envoy and diplomat to the united states and i think he would do great as secretary of state. as far as mr. hagel is concerned, i served with him on the senate, but he hasn't been nominated yet and i'll reserve any judgment until after the hearings we have on confirmation if, in fact, he is nominated. >> senator klobuchar, on senator hagel, even the top democrat on the foreign affairs committee eliot engel said he has severe issues with secretary -- the possibility of secretary hagel because of what he called his endemic hostility towards israel. do you share those concerns? >> well, again, i want to see what happens to these hearings. i
. >>> plus the chuck hagel for secretary of defense bubble has been popped. by floating other names. did obama's miss like bork even getting nominated? i don't like this process. >>> and new reports the tea party process was imploding, imploding well before election day. including an attempt with dick armey getting aimed. >>> plus we'll have the top viral videos of 2012 including this one. >> we're all on our own if romney has his way. and he's against safety nets. if you fall, tough luck. so i strongly suggest that you wake the [ bleep ] up. >> actually, that's samuel l. jackson, he's a nice fella personally. this is "hardball," the place for politics. he really is a nice guy. i met him. lf? c'mon, michael! get in the game!

passed in senate already. >> can check hagel become secretary of defense if he's the republican's nominee? >> a lot of republicans have asked hard questions. i don't think he's going to get many republicans votes. i like chuck but his positions are really out of the mainstream and well to the left of the president. i think it would be a challenging nominations but the hearings will matter. chuck will have a chance to defend himself. >> will you support him? >> i'm going to wait and see what happens in the hearings. i've got questions with chuck and iran, hamas and hezbollah, his position toward israel, just afghanistan. i want to hear what he has to say. but very troubling comments by a future secretary of defense. >> senator schumer, should the president make that nomination? >> well, that's his choice. i think once he makes it his record will be studied carefully, but until that point i think we're not going to know what's going to happen. >> can you support him? >> i'd have to study his record. i'm not going to comment until the president makes a nomination. >> we're going to leave it
will capture nfc west and get a first round bi. also picked is defensive tackle justin smith, and linebacker patrick williams -- willis. first timers, the raider dz not have a single player to make prot bowl. speaking of oakland no decision on who will start at quarterback in san diego. both practiced today but did face a majority of the snaps. san jose state playing the first bowl game tomorrow when taking on bowling green in the military bowl played in washington, d.c.. spartans come in riding a six-game winning streak. throwing for 31 touchdowns, san jose can move it on the ground beyond leon estridge. >> this is a good defensive football team. i watched them and three techniques and player of the year offensively they are efficient. there is a third year quarterback. >> they've given up 13 sacks that is something i want to increase that number. so hold running game, it's something they're good at. to be able to get pressure to make plays. just shut down offense. >> one bowl game tonight western kentucky playing in little ceasear's bowl. western kentucky making a bowl appearance answered
a treaty that says we will come to the defense of japan. but we have defense treaties with many other countries. it does not mean that we agree with the actions of all of our allies. trying to make that differentiation has been very difficult. >> i was wondering what it was like for you personally. you became an instant celebrity in china. people saw you buying your own coffee at starbucks, carrying your own luggage, and they could not imagine -- what was that like? >> it was overwhelming at first. it went viral. the pictures of us in the u.s.a. -- we were not even in china -- somehow when the virus. -- went viral. you were instantly recognized. peddlers and merchants on the great wall, we were asked by everybody for pictures. it was overwhelming, but for a flattering. the chinese have been very warm and gracious. >> how much does it matter to them that your father was born in china? >> it is a source of great pride that i am a chinese-american. my ancestors are all from china. my wife's family is from china as well. >> in some way, they expect you to take the chinese side and all of
to restore some of the defense cuts they say go just too far. in that quick time period, maybe a week or two, the president can position himself as, sort of the restorer of tax cuts for the middle class and of defense spending. gregg: right. >> thereby, i think, helping to ameliorate some of the problems that democrats faced over past three decades politically. gregg: what of john boehner though? steve latourette, who said, the same 50 or 60 chuckle heads who always screw things up, speaking of the tea party group. >> yeah. gregg: he said it is not really the speaker's fault. is it the speaker's fault? >> well, look, i think boehner was, he is in a bad spot. there are no good outcomes here for republicans. there have been no good policy outcomes for republicans. i watched the steven latourette comment, one of the things that struck me, these are the guys, 50 or 60 chuckle heads came here and screwed things up. the presumption congress was working just fine before they arrived. i would argue that it is nice we have people in congress who are actually serious about looking at the long term con
, secretary of defense. during the civil war, and in fact during world war ii there was a secretary of war who was responsible for the army and secretary of the navy, obviously responsible for the navy, who sat as coequals at the cabinet table, and they were members of a coalition perhaps. they were on the same side without a doubt. but they were hardly partners. and that became very clear early on. not only with haleck, "general can't be done" jealous of his own command. wanted to keep the forces under his own control, which he believed was essential to capture the railroad hub, and the navy whereas equally jealous of partnering with he army. they didn't want to do it. secretary of the navy, gideon wells, was actually determined whenever possible that the navy should do things without helping the army. wasn't that they could do it without the army. they routey sought to do it without the army, and that was a good thing because they got the headlines. so, behind all of this difficulty that begins to emerge now late in '62, there's an underpinning of jealousy, competition, rivalry, between the
defense and social security and medicare. they will know which party is trying to destroy working democracy in order to pursue its political ends. they will know who respects the voter and who thumbs his nose at the voter. we go over this cliff and you will not have to ask for whom the bell tolls, it will be tolling for you. leading off tonight, josh green and chris frates of "national journal." you don't have to be as clear as i but try, gentlemen, tonight. it looks to me like one party, once again it's asymmetric. both parties are not screwing around, one is. is that true? >> i think both parties want to go over the cliff. >> both want to go over the cliff? who will get blamed? >> i think republicans will get blamed, but i think republicans at this point fear casting a career-threatening vote to raise taxes instead of waiting four days and letting the cliff -- >> and then they can technically say -- >> they're voting for a tax cut. >> do they presume the voters are that dumb? they think there's a difference? they might think that. >> they might. >> do they think the voters are t
plan that involves changing the cost of living adjustment for social security beneficiaries. if defense cuts are on the table, do you believe that entitlement savings should be as well as both sides are trying to say we want to reach the sensible center on this, but either side won't budge? >> well, you know, what you're saying sounds sensible, but it ultimately isn't. the reason why is because we're talking about seniors that live on $22,000 a year and are going to face a $650 cut by the time those seniors get 75 years old. you're saying the poorest of the poor, the most economically vulnerable people on fixed incomes have got to do -- get by with less when the military budget has literally doubled -- more than doubled since 2010. here's the thing. if i -- giving up your one coat if you only have one coat is nott the same as giving up one coat if you have ten coats, right? so what -- so the ekwifl ensy that people are trying to derive here just isn't there because low income seniors have been squeaking by for so -- with so little for so long. that's why we are sort of taking a tough po
as a potential secretary of defense. >> senator kerry will go through and, he is an appropriate secretary of state. i think, for a light footprint, often -- he'll execute president obama's foreign policy confidently, i'm sure and i think senator hagel will either not be nominated or confirmed, he's more extreme than john kerry and, the obama white house says he's a republican and, republicans will go for him, but on foreign policy issues, especially the last several years, he is way to the left of president obama in terms of iran sanctions. he's -- iran sanctions, the vote which got 92, 97 votes in the senate and he voted against, and, a letter signed by 99 senators, denouncing russia and he refused to sign it and he's anti-israel and talked about the jewish lobby in 2006. and for a republican -- talking about the jewish lobby having too much influence on capitol hill, will that person be appropriate to be secretary of defense? i think senator hagel will not be nominated by president obama, he likes him, they went on this trip together and he likes the idea of having a republican and all
, not playing well, not getting things going on the defensive end. today, the ravens picked on cory webster all day in that giants' second dare. flacco played great on this day. baltimore going back to the postseason, division champs. w the goal again, can they get into the super bowl? they almost did it last year, coming up just short against the patriots. >> you think your super bowl pick before the season -- >> ravens and 49ers. and they looked great today. >>> bengals had a great day. >> first time since 1981, bengals in the playoffs back-to-back years. kenny anderson was the quarterback the last time they did it. so a long time ago. bengals get a touchdown on a ben roethlisberger interception. the steelers are just not dynamic enough on offense. they had all sorts of problems today. they do come from behind to tie it 10-10. but late in the fourth, josh brown, former steelers kicker, able to win it in the closing seconds. cincinnati wins 13-10. >> week 17 coming up. that's a wrap on week 16. thank you, sir. as always, thank you. more football coming up next on the "world news now" competiti
, the cost of the war was not included in the budget except the military and the defense budget. but the additional costs were not reflected in the budget. there were always supplementals. so they didn't show as a deficit. a vendor ackley to the debt. so while the budgets were reasonable in that period of time, the actual spending didn't show in the budget and people didn't pay as much attention to the debt as they do today because it kept mounting and so we borrowed to pay for the war and in fact we didn't ask people to make sacrifices financially. >> there is a difference between borrowing in the future, paying for work and paying back words, we are having to pay right now. people might have felt differently if they had felt the pinch right at that time. we would have asked different questions and were asked, and i think that is one of the reasons we got where we are. and it's where we are. >> on appropriations could you have been any more vocal about it to provide us getting into this situation? >> welcome on was vocal about it. i don't know. when i got on the appropriations
early last week. they stopped the defense sequester and that's all they did because it won't go anywhere after that. the $500 billion in defense cuts are still set to take place. all the other spending cuts are set to take place and it's, of course, in deal-making this is called the ckabuki theater and people are depending on them to get it right by the deadline. there's no argument being made that it's good to go over the fiscal cliff. >> please, make the argument, dean. >> one argument is that there are will be a lot of people in washington that pretend to be ve very knowledgeable. but seriously, if nothing happens on january 1st, i'll be subject to a higher rate of withholding. if they do a deal on january 5th as opposed to december 28th, the difference to 99.9% of the population is basically zilch and we get to see a lot of people with egg on their face. >> why. >> because they've been running around like the myian calendar, the end of the world and it's nonsense. the reality is on the spending side, president obama will keep spending in accordance with what he thinks the deals look
burns a former federal prosecutor and criminal defense attorney. and john manweli, a former criminal defense attorney. waoepl mawaoepl may not influence that the high court cases influence people practicing law day-to-day. doug -rpbgs tel tell me your thoughts on the healthcare. >> a lot of the people ran out of building saying it's been struck down. it was struck down on commerce clause grounds and the necessary and proper clause grounds. jaime: it had to be. >> there it was on page 10 that it was being upheld as a tax which i agree w. the long and short of it was it's the same analysis that we rendered all yearlong. it's 2700 pages long, i'm not sure anybody understan understands. i asked a friend of mine who is a physician can you tell me what is in the health code. he looked at me bang leave. >> john, what do you think about the court a growing to take up two gay marriage cases, what could be the impact of that? >> well, the court has a balancing act to do. obviously if you're a person of homosexuality and would like your rights there is an equal protection clause in the constitu
's coach going back to mark sanchez. ryan said sanchez is more familiar with the bill's defense and i don't like tebow i think he said. just kidding about the last part. it is a bad start for the nets. avery johnson fired as head coach. there are reports that the nets will go all out to recruit superstar coach phil jackson. >> julia: too early. >> eric: we'll go to maria molina. yes, no? i am sorry, check out this video. it is new surveillance video of a tornado stuck in mobile, alabama. there you go. parking lot of a walgreen's store. the strong winds lifting up the cars in the parking lot. fortunately no one was seriously hurt . now, we can talk about going to maria molina . take it away maria. sorry about that. >> no problem. fortunately we'll not see tornadic activity in the south but areas hit hard with tornados in alabama and mississippi will be getting rainfall today. we have a brand new storm system that we are track bringing get more snow on the northeast as we head into torm tomorrow and that storm that just left. expecting a dry day. we got 20 inches was snow in upstate new yor
of those bush tax rates into the future and would turn off the sequester by switching defense cuts over to domestic programs. democrats, of course have no intention of doing that. especially after president obama won the election. senate democratic leadership aide tells me that will remains a 50/50 chance we will get a mini deal temporary extension of tax cuts under $250,000 before the january 1 deadline when we would go over the cliff. will are no assurances of that. a white house official told me as president obama prepares to fly back to conduct and participate in the negotiations at the end, there has been no progress over the holiday weekend. michelle, i'm afraid that people who are looking for a deal and looking for a deal by december 31, all hope is not lost. it is not looking good at the moment. >> let's go back to this hitting the debt ceiling on monday. we learned of this because treasury secretary tim good night mother sent a letter to the honorable harry reid majority leader. and that's where he outline it is fact that in three business days, the summit government is going t
to pay lower taxes and get more services if you're in defense, you say, we need the money. if you're in agriculture, you see we need subsidized crop insurance. where does it end? in montana, we've had eight years of -- they're not willing to do that in washington, d.c. they just kick the can down the road. >> what does it mean in terms of federal aid or reduction in federal aid if we go over the fiscal cliff and even if we don't go over the cliff, and they come up with a bandaid, you risk losing more federal aid down the road, don't you? >> no question about you. we're a rural state. montana is the size of pefl r. -- pennsylvania, new york. there are federal dollars that pay for maintaining those highways. you can't have a million people pay for all those highways because it connects the entire country. you have forest service, 30% of the land is owned by the federal government. so there's a lot of federal dollars that come to montana. that's part of the system. >> what would be the economic impact, going back to what the farmer was telling us about the situation, if estate taxes
and they happen in defense and in medical as well. how much are those providing services to those sectors of the economy. >> one is my sister. she's a doctor and runs two medical practices here in the philadelphia area and she's a small business owner and it will hit her pretty hard because medicaid payments will be cut. people in other industries, particularly like you had said, tied to defense, those people will be hurting as well. however, if you're in the accounting business, what with the increase of taxes not such a bad year for you next year so it depends on what kind of business you're in. >> oh, yeah. if you prepare tax filings you're going to -- it's great, right? the more complicated the taxes get the better it is for you. it's terrible. >> you got it. legal profession, if you're in temporary services because people want to hire, not such a bad year for you or if you provide some type of technology services that will save companies money or reduce their overhead also not such a bad outlook. it happeneds on the small business that you're in, absolutely, some will go through pain
spending at the current levels. the automatic cuts and what they do to the defense department. leon panetta said they would be devastating. we are talking about national security. we live in a dangerous world. if you cut your defense ability by 50%, this is catastrophic. host: from twitter, jody. know there is any principle detection. there are lawsuits for misuse of a weapon. there are a lot of state laws. connecticut had about the toughest laws possible. connecticut had very tough laws . apparently the killer was turned down to buy a rifle because of the background checked. his mother had an arsenal at home. people should be liable if they miss use a weapon. people have these concealed carry weapons. host: democratic caller. caller: i have a couple things here. the fact is that the weapons tingsin the school shoo were bought legally. i have nothing against the so- called assault weapons. i am against the 30-round c lips. it could take two-hand acation instead of just -- two-hand action instead of just one. the amount of recoil is controlled by the power that is put through the shell from
to succeed the defense secretary. you have former republican senator chuck hagel being talked about as a possible replacement as defense secretary, but i understand there's a lot of complications here and even controversy. can you tells what's happening in terms of background discussions of chuck hagel taking that job. >> you know, his name has been out there for a few weeks now as the sort of so-called front-runner. maybe it's a bit of an administration trial balloon at this point. we don't know. officially the white house hasn't made a decision on who at the present times to be the next secretary of defense, but they have let hagel's name be out there. that gave time for the opposition to reform. republicans and even democrats on capitol hill, his former allies coming out and being concerned about some of his positions that he took as a u.s. senator. alleging that he was not strong enough on countering iran, did not strovote for iran sanctions especially critical of his stance on israel. that he was perhaps not as supportive of israel as he should have been. chuck hagel is a prese
said that's not right. and i secretary of defense i would like to buy the dog. i only have $100. he said well it's my friend's dog and he wants more money for this dog. >> she then called police. a veteran narin scanned the pooch for a microchip and tracked down the owner. police arresting the suspected chief. >> arizona. firefighters rescuing an. the man 60 years old fell and broke his arm -- plans to finish the journey this saturday in miami. california, a highway worker who put snow chains on tires came across a wedding band on a snow covered highway. now, he is looking for the owner. the worker says he saw the guy on the shoulder looking for the ring and slipped off putting chains on cars. with led's the highway worker found it he never expected to find it he never got the couple's name before he drove off. that's a fox watch across america. i'm harris faulkner in tonight for shepard smith. this is the fox report. we are monitoring the progress of a major winter storm being blamed for killing at least 6 people so far. this wintry monstrous mess has brought snow, freezey rain and
we don't expect that move. the defense department, leon panetta likely to step down. chuck hagel has been the leading contender we're told but now is running into interference from groups, including chuck schumer, who is expressing concern and former republican senator is the right guy. this is playing out like the susan rice situation, the u.n. embassador who never got nominated but there was criticism to the president pulled it back. john kerry getting that nomination. there's frustration among the president's supporters that he's leaving names out and not moving ahead but the fiscal cliff negotiations are dominating his time. >> the fiscal cliff and diamond head in the background and waikiki beach. ed, safe trip home. >>> joining us, from u.s. news and world report, ken walsh. who is going to come to the rescue, anybody? >> looks like there's a road block at every critical juncture point here. it looks like now the ball's in the senate's court, to mix met force. the house failed to get to a vote with speaker boehner's plan. it looks like the best they can do, really, is some kind
green? >> good defensive football team. i watched them on tape a little bit. the top 10-15 in the country. the three techniques, the player of the year in the conference offensively. they really efficient. a third year quarterback. >> only given up 13 sacks which is something for me as a d lineman that i want to increase that number. so hold their running game because that is something that they are good at. and then be able to get prohe sure on the quarterback for us to be able to make plays and just shut down the offense. >> western kentucky and central michigan squared off in the little caesars bowl. before you can see pizza, pizza, the chippewas ryan radcliff finds nori and he goes all the way for a touchdown. western kentucky which was making its first ever bowl appearance answers with a trick play. the lateral back to jakes who has rico brown open downfield. western kentucky could have kicked a tying field goal but instead went for it on fourth and two.
with the defense spending cuts and nothing else i mean s. we have got to make sure that we avoid taxes increases on the middle class at the very least and we can make sure that at this point we're not within a time frame that we can pass a major deal. the house and senate republicans already basically wasted so much time that prevented us from doing that. now we need to come together, avoid taxes increases, make sure we can extend unemployment insurance so we have people who are still looking for work that aren't left out in the cold and make sure the few other loose ends we can tie up so we can deal with this? a more major way are ability to happen. we have to try to avoid the biggest dive that we could take off the fiscal cliff. >> republicans are blaming democrats. you've heard the line, washington doesn't have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem. i want to play this from senator john thune and get your reaction. >> even if the president got everything he wanted, it generates -- next year alone, so the question is, what do we do for the other 358 days of the year? we have to do some
on the senate banking committee. >>> he hasn't been nominated as defense secretary yet, but former senator chuck hagel is getting some heat. hagel apologized for comments he made years ago that even heinse. let's bring in barbara starr at the pentagon for more on this potential chuck hagel nomination. we don't know if he'll be nominated yet. barbara, what are the attacks against hagel? >> classic washington trial balloon. the nomination isn't out, nomination hasn't been made, but the pins are sticking in that trial balloon. first, senator hagel apologized for comments he made back around 1997, 1998 when there was a man who was openly gay about to become an ambassador, hagel opposed all of that, made some comments about gay people. now he says all these years later he regrets it, it is not what he believes. and by all accounts members of those who represent pro gay rights movements in washington have accepted senator hagel's apology on that. item number two, a lot of questions about whether hagel is tough enough on iran. did he cast some votes in the senate that did not support sanctions against
1. at the same time, the federal government, including our armed forces and defense workers, will undergo deep, across the board budgetary cuts. these are the cuts that president obama promised during the campaign would never take effect. well we need to reduce spending, we can do it in a much smarter, more targeted way. going over the so-called fiscal cliff will lead to devastating job losses, at a time when american families and small business owners are still struggling to get back on their feet. in contrast, the nonpartisan congressional budget office estimates extending tax rates afro-americans would create nearly 1.8 million jobs and increase the nation -- rates for americans would create nearly 1.8 million jobs. congress's action to make the first tax bracket and% instead of 50% -- the child tax credit -- 10% instead of a 15% raised the child tax credit. there is still time to act. both president obama and senator harry reid claim that an achievable plan is one that can pass both houses of congress. republicans agree. the republican controlled house has taken a step i
they get together and what kind of system is that? where does the defense have these rights? that's right, and then i think, you know, 98% or 95% of the cases are decided by a plea-bargain between the prosecutor and the lead defense lawyer. and i say what kind of a system is that? .. >> go into a courtroom. it's a nasty system. and it isn't terribly efficient. they put it in because hamilton and the others hoped it would do one kind of a guarantee of a certain kind of basic liberty. and, of course, i believed in that. i wouldn't spend so much time -- yes. now, here. sorry. >> thanks. justice breyer, and john. i write the mitchell report. as i was listening to the beginning of this conversation between the two of you i was reminded of a wonderful conversation that took place probably 30 plus years ago between bill moyers and one of, a former justice, justice blackmun, talking about the constitution. answer this question sort of goes to at what's at the heart of constitutionalism and rule of law, and looking back at the list of things that you listed. in the course of that conversation afte
by the department of defense shows that 20% of our active duty military personnel report they engaged in heavy drinking in 2008. binge drinking rose from 35% of personnel in 1998 to 47% in 2008. drug abuse of illegal and prescription drugs rose from 2% in 2002 to 11% in 2008: the report recommended better screening and that's just what the marine corps is doing, according to a directive issued in month the purpose of the screening program is to provide gheanders and additional tool to provide marines and sailors in their commands at risk for the adverse effects of alcohol abuse or misuse. the report notes that alcohol has long been a part of military culture. but it recommends better leadership on the frish top commanders all the way down. and it says this spike in cases results partly from outdated approaches to preventing and treating substance abuse. the marine corps is the first to have this strict screening policy. of the program begins january 1st. marines will u breathalyzer tests twice a year. those with blood alcohol levels .01 or higher will be referred for counseling. those with .04
to kick in. that's the only way we'll cut defense spending in this country. what is happening with the sequester? where are we on the pentagon cuts? >> nobody wants those pentagon cuts, including the president of the united states. there may be some on the left who would favor that. but that's not a dominant position. that's not where the political center of gravity is in the country. i think it's very likely that those sequester cuts are going to be turned off. now, remember the sequester, $1.2 trillion over the next nine years. that's a little over $100 billion a year. so half of that is defense, half of that is discretionary. the kick the can mini deal solution that we're talking about would identify some subset of spending cuts that would be the lowest hanging fruit still available that might turn off the sequester, or they could just turn off the trigger all together. the sequester exists because of a law passed by congress, another law passed by congress could change it. >> good to see you, john. thanks for the update. >> mastercard spending pulse saying it's the lowest

week was a bill that restored the sequester cuts to defense and which did some incredible damage to social programs by getting rid of the social services bloc grant meaning meals on wheels eliminated and things like that. that was essentially a bill that dealt with spending. the house has proposed extending all of the bush tax cuts for all income levels. that is something that cannot pass the senate. so i'm not sure what boehner thinks is going to be amended in the senate because the whole thing would be scrapped. the senate bill that was passed in july was sort of a clean bill. it was flawed in the sense that it didn't deal with the alternative minimum tax and some other things, but it extended the rates for everything under $250,000. that's the bill that the president wants to see an up or down vote in the house. again, even if the house were to vote on that bill, it would still have to go bab to the senate because the house has to act first. so it's just a mess. >> okay. thanks, joy. thanks, leigh. thanks for sticking around. stay tuned at 5:45 or the president's statement. up
